Little Box Ballet

Margaret Greaves, Author, Francesca Crespi, Illustrator Dial Books $8.95 (28p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0265-3
Greaves condenses three ballets, The Firebird, Petrushka and Coppelia, into three small books that fit snugly into the palm of one's hand. Although she simplifies the action, the dramatic impact is retained. Crespi has added resplendent miniature paintings with rich folkloric borders. Balletomanes or not, many readers will be entranced by these small gems, which are available only as a set. (3-8)
